The Big W

The Big W 

 

Respect for members and for our profession is very evident on ActiveRain . We could  share examples of respect when we hear the negatives in our industry. With anything other than positive words, let's take action.

We are quick to protect other members when a harsh or hurtful comment is made. Why not take it a step further. Let's be quick to protect all of real estate and not allow bashing in what we read, hear and sometimes are even involved.

Without expounding on how the Real Estate industry has gotten a less than desirable name in the eyes of the general public, what can we do to rebuild this confidence?

If all members shared the good, done by the Realtor® community, we would be able to promote this wonderful profession called Real Estate! 

We do make dreams come true through home ownership.

 

 

weltanschauung 

 

 Weltanschauung: the guiding  principles and philosophy of an organization. It is a German word made up of Welt "world" + Anschauung "outlook''.

Now if you want to know how to pronounce it, go to Hannah's post

 

 For the 2016 Jumpstart Challenge, Lynn Friedman suggested we write about Weltanschauung and  I chose  #10  ActiveRain believes that it is in the best interests of real estate professionals to build a community that is focused on educating one another. ActiveRain believes its future depends on members of all experience levels openly sharing their experiences and best practices with others in the field. This communal dialogue offers a unique opportunity for professional growth and is the way to share in the dynamism and excitement that constitutes the modern real estate business.

We don't like it when one of our own are picked on. You said it best by saying respect.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland True to form you have explained the Big W in a way that all can understand and thanks to Hannah Williams can pronounce the word . . . Maybe.

  We are so lucky to be part of organization like ActiveRain.

I saw Debbie's reblog. The Big W is the heart of this community. We can debate but need to stay professional and respectful.

There's a fine line between being constructively critical and bashing. Some people don't know where that line is and we here in the Active Rain community can help them find it.

Good morning Margaret. What a lovely post that simplifies the essence of the big W.

Wise words from a very wise woman!!!  There is so much good that can be talked about, but yet it is the bad stuff that always makes the headlines.

Simply perfect way to describe it. You are the epitome of class and any new agent would be wise to emulate your grace and expertise.
